Description: As warm and welcoming, as a traditional English Carriage House. The white walls and exposed rafters are adorned with riding tack, farm tools and other historic artifacts. While the wooden floors, wagon wheel bar stools and open fireplace add to the warmth.

Very nice little pub with great atmosphere. They won’t take bookings so you may need to wait. Plenty of food options. I would describe it as fancy pub food. Wholesome food at reasonable prices. Deserves its rating as best place in town.

Was told that reservation was not needed, but restaurant was full when we arrived at 7 pm. However, we were seated in about 10 mins.
We ordered the beef cheeks, lamb shank and salmon. The agreement was that the salmon was the best dish. Also enjoyed the pavlova.

After hiking the glacier my husband and I popped to Alice may for some hearty grub and lovely NZ wine. We were not disappointed. Friendly staff, lovely food, good servie and an excellent wine selection.

For convenience my wife and I made choices from the "Special - 3 Course Set Menu'. This Special menu clearly showed less choice and a reduced price. What it didn't indicate was the small size of the fish and chips main course. The male waiter admitted that there had been problems with this in the past and provided a discount as part of an apology. The waiters manner was impeccable, his offer of a discount was appropriate, but clearly the owner needs to reassess this business decision. If you reduce the price of a meal you need to indicate if you have also reduced the quantity and/or quality of that meal.
